Metal Chimneys:

Metal chimneys can be used to vent any appliance. The type and size of the metal chimney is determined by the appliance that is being vented.

The benefits of a metal chimney are numerous:

You can install an appliance almost anywhere in a room, not just next to an existing masonry chimney.
You can install an appliance that won't properly vent through an existing chimney for size or safety reasons.
The appliance drafts better, because the chimney is the exact size that is needed.
The chimney is easier to maintain and clean as metal does not absorb creosote.
It can be enclosed in a chase, which is a wooden structure built around it and which can then be sided to match your home, or covered with brick or stone facing to look like a traditional chimney.

Metal chimneys are not the same as stove pipe, they are specifically made for venting to the outside. Stove pipe can only be used to connect a stove to a chimney, it can never be used as a chimney. Metal chimneys are also not liners. A liner must be used as a flue inside an existing chimney structure. Although you can enclose a metal chimney in a chase, it can stand alone as a separate chimney.

There are many different brands of metal chimneys, as well as sizes, styles specific to what you are venting. We only use high quality professional grade chimney. And now one of the manufacturers we use has available a powder coating, which colors the metal chimney to match your home or roof (extra charges apply).
